I need to disclose seven things about myself that you may not have known. Wow, I've been so honest here that I feel you know all about me already....
1 - In my 40's I took some college courses. Financial Accounting, Managerial Accounting, Economics, Access - Excel - Word. Got A's. Stopped going. I felt that it would take too long to get a degree at one course per semester. I was already working two jobs and couldn't do it any faster.
2 - Do I regret it? Sometimes yes, sometimes no. I don't like to sit still and can't picture myself in a suit behind a desk, or staying up working on a computer at 11:30 at night. I didn't want the headaches or the agita. No use looking back now. I'm pretty much satisfied.
3 - I most often spend Friday nights and Saturdays with my 90 year old mother, who recently suffered a bad fall from standing on a kitchen stepstool, trying to reach the cabinet over the fridge. She is where I get my streak of independence. Only in recent years have I come to appreciate how strong she was all her life. She never wanted much but if there was something she did want, she would make it happen. (Thus, our trip to Ireland when I was in high school.)
4 - In high school I wore my hair long with those two thin braids from the center part, hippie style. I also had one of those India-inspired dresses with the tiny mirrors embroidered on the front.
5 - After keeping my hair short for the past few decades, I am letting the layers grow out. When it gets long enough to put in those two thin braids again, I'll post a picture….maybe... I might have to look through Goodwill for a mirror dress :)
6 - I haven't gone to a movie theater since I took my grandchildren to see the Incredibles. Folks at work can’t understand why I don’t know the actors they mention. But then, they don't know who William Powell was, or Charles Laughton, or.....
7 – I’m trying to get my life in order, sort things out, and live a peaceful existence.
Now I am to nominate others for this award. Please don't consider me as wimping out but I feel that every blogger I have met is creative. I am inspired by all the blogs I read as I trip the 'net fantastic. If you so choose, please post seven things about yourself that you have not posted before. I'd enjoy reading your list, too!
